Clubfoot is a congenital condition that affects a child’s foot or feet, causing them to appear twisted or turned inward. While clubfoot may raise concerns for parents, rest assured that care and treatment from Children’s Podiatry Clinics can greatly improve your child’s foot function and appearance. At Children’s Podiatry Clinics, we are dedicated to providing expert care and comprehensive treatment options for children born with clubfoot.

Understanding Clubfoot:

Clubfoot is a condition in which a child’s foot is turned inward and downward at birth, giving the appearance of the foot being rotated at the ankle. It can occur in one or both feet and is one of the most common congenital foot deformities.

Causes of Clubfoot:

The exact cause of clubfoot is not always known, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It is not caused by anything the parents did during pregnancy.

Signs and Symptoms:

Clubfoot is usually noticeable at birth and may include:

Expert Care at Children's Podiatry:

Our experienced team of Children’s Podiatrists has a special interest in diagnosing and treating clubfoot, offering comprehensive care to improve your child’s foot function and quality of life.

Early Intervention:

Treatment for clubfoot should begin as early as possible, ideally within a few weeks after birth.

Non-Surgical Methods:

Most cases of clubfoot can be successfully treated without surgery. Treatment options may include:

Long-Term Management:

Following the initial treatment, long-term management may involve the use of a brace to prevent recurrence and maintain proper foot alignment.

Support and Education:

We provide parents with the guidance and education needed to care for their child's clubfoot and ensure a successful treatment outcome.

Surgical Intervention (if needed):

In very rare cases where non-surgical methods are not successful, surgical intervention may be considered to correct the foot's alignment.
